We are excited to begin collecting donations for the Saint Francis of Assisi Soup Kitchen and Clothing Store in Scranton, Pennsylvania! Saint Francis of Assisi is a non-profit organization whose members and volunteers take the time to make sure those in need are served a free, hot, nutritious meal 365 days a year – regardless of that person’s faith.
Located in downtown Scranton, the Kitchen serves over 225 hot meals each day. Since first opening their doors in August 1978, they have served over 2.2 million meals since then! Saint Francis of Assisi also collects gently used clothing to offer at their Free Clothing Store, which is available for members of the community who cannot afford the everyday necessity.
The entirety of the Kitchen at Saint Francis of Assisi is run by volunteers and donations from the community, so they could use any contribution possible. Currently, they are in most need of nonperishable food items and gently used clothing, as well as:
• Macaroni & Cheese
• Men’s Underwear
• Powdered creamer for coffee
• Pasta and pasta sauce
For the remainder of August and into September, we will be collecting a variety of nonperishable food items and gently used clothing to help support as many local members of our community as we can. As always, any contribution big or small is highly appreciated by the humble volunteers and visitors.
